I have had someone ask a similar question. I know for a fact that he has plenty of money.
I told him straight that I will not be helping anyone do anything that I consider immoral - which isn't a new policy for me.

Issue invoices for fees frequently and collect them. That would be my advice - for practices. Advice for clients, others can help with.

If only people wrote books explaining how the tax legislation works - or perhaps wrote technical guidance that they put on the internet for professionals to read. Or, perhaps, packaged it into courses and had exams at the end.
I think there could be demand for the above. Whoever implements it could make some money.

I hate it when clients request copies of documents that I have emailed them in the past. Search your emails!

That argument is nothing compared to some of the schemes/arguments I've seen Cornerstone promoting - and mainly getting away with without enquiry (or disclosure) over the years.

Blimey, Peterdell (the OP) is being quite sharp with people considering he was the one who asked a basic question.

"I cannot think..."
Looks that way.
Have you considered retraining as a dog walker?

After every Panorama programme etc, I get some shady "Entrepreneur"/big thinker/self declared genius phoning me up with various schemes like this.
The "If Amazon can do it" line tends to be used by those with the greatest distance between their arrogance and their ability.
But crack on if you want. Good luck getting bitten by a load of rules that international companies can easily swerve, but that an owner-manager working and living in the UK cannot. That's just for starters

Definitely true. An accounts assistant I once worked with said a tax manager at his last firm met the accountant of the chap's ex-wife at a conference.
Mind, he also said that his uncle's sister's girlfriend's cat knew a nurse at a hospital close to the one in which that celebrity had 40 kinds of fluid removed from his stomach.

You still have a stick a value on the 'chose in action asset' and tax it, don't you?
Is the client feeling optimistic and going for the full £80K? ;)
